Creating mail database replicas in a cluster during user registration

You can use the HCL Domino® Administrator to create mail database replicas during user registration.

From the Domino® Administrator


  1. Click the People & Groups tab.
  2. In the Tools pane, expand People, and then click Register.
  3. In the Choose a Certifier dialog box, choose a certifier:
    1. Use the default server or click Server to specify a server.
      • If you are supplying a certifier ID, select the server that is used to locate the list of certifiers so that the Certifier ID file can be updated with the latest set of certificates for itself and all of its ancestors.
      • If you are using the Domino® server-based CA, select the server that is used to access the Domino® Directory to look up the list of certifiers.
        Note: This is also the server on which CERTLOG.NSF is updated.

      Then select one of these options:

    2. Supply a certifier ID and password.
      • Click Certifier ID if you want to use an ID other that which is displayed.
      • Otherwise, click OK, enter the password for the selected certifier ID, and click OK.
    3. Use the CA Process. If you have configured the Domino® server-based CA, select a CA configured certifier from the list and click OK.
  4. In the Register Person > New Entry dialog box, select Advanced, and then click the Mail tab.
  5. In the Mail system field, choose Notes.
  6. Click Mail Server, and choose a cluster server as the Mail server.
  7. Click Mail File Replicas.
  8. Select Create mail database replica(s). A list is displayed of servers in the same cluster as the mail server.
  9. Do one of the following:
    • To create a replica of the mail database on all of the cluster servers, skip this step.
    • To change the list of servers to receive a replica, use the Remove Server(s) button and the Add Server(s) button.
  10. Optional: Select Create mail replica(s) in background.
  11. Click OK, and then complete any other fields you want on the Mail tab.
  12. Optional: To set up the user for roaming, follow the procedure for setting up roaming servers in a cluster, including the procedure for setting up new users for roaming.
  13. Complete the rest of the user registration the way you normally would.
